Historic Village Temporary Closure

The Historic Village Herberton will be temporarily closing to the public, effective from Wednesday, March 25.

The health and wellbeing of staff, volunteers, visitors and our community is the Historic Village’s top priority, and this precautionary measure will ensure their safety and assist our local health services in their efforts against novel coronavirus, COVID-19. 

Due to the evolving nature of the situation, we do not have a scheduled date for reopening. We will continue to monitor the situation and all government advice and will provide regular updates on our website and through our social media channels.

While we are closed, our staff will continue to protect the site, including our collection of heritage buildings, unique assets, lawns and  gardens, ensuring we are ready to reopen when we are able. 

We would like to thank the public for their understanding in these challenging times and look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Historic Village Herberton in the future.
